We have over 60,000 thoughts in 24 hours
More than 5,000 external messages flash before our eyes daily and
We check our phones over 150 times every day, interrupting us nearly every 3 minutes
These are just some of the statistics we have come across in recent studies showing how many things we have going on in our lives in every minute of every day. The feeling of being overwhelmed is not something exclusively being suffered by CEOs, leaders and business owners. It trickles into the lives of all of us.
And so, Small Act Major Impact was born.
Born after having worked with hundreds of business owners, leaders and employees who really want to make things happen.
What we have learned is that there is a way to make things happen.
It is by adopting the Small Act Major Impact approach. By adding it to your daily diet.
Business, life and family success are valued equally here at Small Act Major Impact aka #SAMI.
Most of the ideas contained in this site come from having worked with major corporations, SMEs and parents who have recently returned to work.
The core essence of this site is to share our learning and the success of business leaders and owners across Australia. By taking care of clearing your mind, you will gain clarity of thought around your messaging, learn techniques to raise the profile of your business and generate leads to your targeted audience. Scientifically and business based research will form an integral part of the information we want to share. We think the most exciting part will be the stories of those who have achieved success through implementing hundreds of small steps over the years resulting in major impacts. This site is about sharing ways you can implement Small Acts and create Major Impacts in your life and your business.
SAMI is about helping you love what you do while turning up the volume for positive measurable impacts.
So……while we share our acts, we’d love to read about yours, because at the end of the day, when you look back, you will realise your whole day was actually made up of thousands of small acts that really did have an impact.
Just one small thing – you may have forgotten to notice them.
Welcome to #SAMI.

Claire Bull used to wear busyness as a badge of honour. But after having two little girls in two years she learnt how important it is to reinstate balance in her life. She has been working in product innovation, consumer insight development and all facets of marketing for more than ten years. Claire has had experience working with major corporations, small business and two person startups across the environmental, retail and packaging industries to name a few. Claire loves nothing more than learning everything about a new industry and using fresh eyes to gain new insights and help communicate the differentiators that your business has. Claire’s Small Act at the moment is learning to meditate for just 5 minutes each day – and convincing her husband it will not make him a hippy if he does it too.
Claire’s favourite quote is “The only way to do great work, is to love what you do.” Steve Jobs
